There have been several beer festival themed slot machines already, but there is always room for one more, particularly if it’s well designed. Wunderfest Deluxe is Oktoberfest themed, or at least it gives that impression, though any beer festival from Bavaria could be used for inspiration. It’s designed by Booming Games.
The 5 reels of Wunderfest Deluxe hold 25 fixed lines in total. The game will have wins as high as $20,000 per line, so the maximum potential it has is $500,000. Expect to find wild symbols, scatters or free spins, meaning that it’s not the most unique feature list around.
Betting and Prizes
First of all, you are getting 25 lines each round, whether you like it or not. This is not an option which can be modified, so you always wager with 25 coins in your bets, but you get to vary what they’re worth. The minimum bet is $0.25, the maximum one is $500, and this gives you a line bet of $0.01 to $20.
As for the prizes that you can land, form a combo of five wilds to get paid the most, 1,000x, or up to $20,000. The slot’s maximum potential is $500,000 for a single spin.
Wunderfest Deluxe Slot Features
Mostly, the features that you will encounter in this game are not going to be all that different from those you have in other slots. The Vertical Multiplying Paylines are the unusual ones, since each one corresponds to a different reel and pays you for having the same symbol in all three positions. You form 5 symbol combinations on the first 20 lines of the game, and 3 symbol combos on the lines 21 to 25. The upside is that the vertical reels pay 3x more, so they do have their use.
Back to the regular features, we find a Wild symbol featuring the image of two beer mugs in it. The symbol will be involved in the formation of various regular combinations, but it can do some good on its own as well, and in fact if it forms a win of up to 5 wilds it will pay the 1,000x jackpot. You will not be able to use a wild in the place of a scatter.
A very appealing keg of beer will be placed in the role of a scatter, and as such you will be able to use it to trigger free spins. You only need three symbols of this type, to trigger 10 free spins. There are no more rounds to be won, as the free spins can’t be re-triggered unfortunately.
Overall, while it has the unique Vertical Multiplying Paylines, those don’t pay all that much, and don’t seem to have a huge impact on the game. The other features are all considered regulars.
Theme & Design
Wunderfest Deluxe should be an appealing choice to a lot of beer-drinking adults, especially the ones that have dreamed of visiting Germany during its famous Oktoberfest. The reels are filled with people from the region that are having fun or simply working as waiters. Expect to see two beautiful women with beer mugs in their hands, a couple of Bavarian men wearing the famous hats and local costumes, along with kegs, beer mugs, steins, pretzels, green hats, accordions and sausages. I found it a fairly enjoyable design overall.
Wunderfest Deluxe is a fun game to play, well designed and filled with themed symbols, and it also manages to innovate via its Vertical Multiplying Paylines, this being something I haven’t seen anywhere else.
